Blackmore's BloodBlackmore's Blood

Deep Purple / Rainbow Tribute act

Ritchie Blackmore is beyond doubt one of the all-time great guitar players. From his roots with The Outlaws and his many session recordings in the sixties, through defining hard rock with Deep Purple and Rainbow in the seventies, eighties and again in the nineties and on to the renaissance rock of Blackmore’s Night, Ritchie has proved that he is a master of the guitar across a multitude of styles.

Since their first gig in early 2016, Blackmore’s Blood’s reputation for presenting the most authentic tribute to the genius, flamboyance and flair of Ritchie from those rock years of Deep Purple and Rainbow, incorporating not only the true sound of the man himself but also the showmanship recreated in true Ritchie style, has lead to increasing successes and a demand for even more shows nationwide.

The band share an unequalled determination, commitment and passion to reproduce the look and sound of Deep Purple and Rainbow that fans of these two great bands want to see and hear. On vocals, Jim is a powerhouse. With the ability to recreate the passion of Gillan, the soulfulness of Coverdale and the spine tingling, breath taking power of Ronnie James Dio and Graham Bonnet. Phil on Bass and Keith on Drums provide the perfect rhythm section, pulling the band together with pinpoint accuracy. Andy on Keyboards has been a follower and fan of the late great Jon Lord for many years giving him inspiration and the conviction to honour and emulate the sound of the great man himself. On guitar we have Mal who has studied and perfected his style and ability to mirror that of Ritchie for over 20 years. Blackmore’s Blood is Mal’s concept and the name comes from the fact that Mal is a true blood relative of Ritchie Blackmore. He has the look of him and an unrivalled ability to play and sound like him too. With support and acknowledgement from personnel who have worked closely with Ritchie during the past 40 years and more, it is clear why they say this band’s own Ritchie, really is the closest and the finest tribute to Ritchie Blackmore anyone is likely to see.
